Another IFGEC Certified! Eric is our 1st non retail individual to pass the exam!
Some comments on the course an exam from Eric:
“ I was impressed by the depth of the material and your abilities to keep a highly complex subject like foot/ankle mechanics and shoe fit to only 3 hours. I have been to a full weekend course on the foot/ankle and didn’t leave with as much practical knowledge! As for the exam, I noticed that some questions had a couple of layers to them that really ensured that the material presented needed to be understood by the participant. I haven’t taken a test before where I received immediate feedback on whether I was right or wrong. At times, I got a little too excited at knowing I was wrong, but for the most part that may help people take extra time to think their answers through.
As for studying, everyone is different. I watched the video three times, took detailed notes and studied them. Also, I’ve been an avid follower of the blog, facebook page and now podcast since I saw Dr. Allen present for the NSCA earlier this year at Chicago State University.
I am the manager for an outpatient orthopedic facility in Flossmoor, IL (southern suburb of Chicago). The overwhelming majority of referrals are worker comp physical therapy and work conditioning patients. I primarily took the course to answer my and my patient’s questions on proper shoe choice and since I’m not a runner, I really didn’t put much thought into shoes beyond "whatever feels comfortable." I have much more confidence on what recommendations need to be made following this course.”
